When you see a stranger in your community, show hospitality,  for in so doing you may be entertaining angels. (Heb13:2)


Jack is a SAMS missionary in Honduras, working with the Episcopal Church of Honduras. As a professional architect, he designs churches, schools, retreat centers, and  other projects sponsored by the diocese.  


In addition, he  serves the poor of Honduras through the Ministry of Presence, which helps young people get an education and job skills.  This ministry also leads Jack into the mountains and remote, rural areas, to be among families of limited resources.  He provides  them with food, medicine,  and pastoral care,  depending on their needs.


SAMS, his sending organization, is an international mission society supporting the work of churches within the Anglican Communion and preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ.
